    I don't have a clue, but I'd be willing to bet dollars to doughnuts all that inlay is silver.

    I'm very much not an expert, just a guy who's read quite a bit and is interested in everything...

    Based on other stuff I've seen I'd say Eastern origin - Middle Eastern or possibly Indian sub-continent (modern India, Pakistan, Afghanistan). If they were European I'd say mid-17th to mid- 18th C based upon the style and the simplicity of the flintlocks, but in those areas the technology didn't change much from that period until the mid to late 19th C...

    Value will depend on details of condition and origin. Could be anything from a few hundred to an easy 5 figures...

    You need a museum or auction house expert to look at them if you're thinking of selling.
